Good news from our members!

The North Carolina Writers' Network is happy to announce good news from our members. If you have had a piece published, won a prize in a competition, or received an award or honor for your writing, let us know and we'll post the news here. "Hats Off" announcements are available to members only. To post your item on the website, please click here.

Hats Off! to Deborah Pope who received the 2018 Robinson Jeffers Tor House Prize for Poetry for her poem "Take Nothing." She wins $1,000, and her poem appears on the website. It also will be published in print. The final judge for the 2018 Prize was poet Richard Blanco.


Hats Off! to Brenda Kay Ledford whose life-experience essay, "The Front Porch," won First Place in the 2018 Cherokee/Clay Counties Senior Games Silver Arts Literary Contest. She qualified for the state finals that will be held this fall in Raleigh.


Hats Off! to Michele Young-Stone whose new novel Lost in the Beehive was named one of the "Best New Books of Spring" by Oprah Winfrey's O Magazine. "In this heartrending and ultimately heartwarming novel, a spunky sixteen-year-old fakes her way through gay conversion therapy and absconds with another patient to experience the boho buzz of 1960s New York."
